Rain earlier on the day of the competition made the ground heavy and slippery, and the competition was close. Two competitors were awarded the joint gold medal when they both cleared 1.85 metres (6 ft 1 in). Competitors were allowed to enter more than once: one of the joint gold medalists, Gian Giorgio Trissino, also came fourth on a different horse; he also won the silver medal in the Equestrian long jump competition. The bronze medalist, Georges Van Der Poele, also won the silver in the Equestrian jumping competition.
